A Multiage Classroom: Choice and Possiblity
Schools have always compartmentalized learning into subject areas, but when they prescribe what exactly should be taught within each area, they further restrict learning. So Maureen Miletta and three other teachers of grades four, five, and six decided to relax those limitations, shuffle subject matter into new patterns, and offer students a voice in their education. In this text, she describes how they created a multiage classroom - a place where learning is valued, where students can choose what they want and need to study, and where teachers are at liberty to develop imaginative programmes. The text is both theoretical and practical. It discusses ways teachers can plan and develop a multiage programme, refine and expand the choices offered to children, integrate and infuse the arts into the curriculum, and effect change in their schools. The book also includes specific strategies to help children teach their peers, assess their own work, develop their own goals, and evaluate their own progress in parent conferences. Teachers interested in creating similar learning environments or experimenting with new ideas and challenges will find encouragement in this text.

A Casebook on School Reform
A well-crafted case is like an evocative photograph, it captures a subject, invites multiple interpretations, and is rich enough to sustain repeated encounters. Each of the cases contained in this volume not only tells a story but also embodies critical issues faced by teachers, administrators, and others striving to improve our schools: What are the ripple effects when an individual teacher changes his or her methods of instruction? What does it mean for teachers to work together to bring about school reform? How is consensus for reform built across the school and larger community? Most cases on education provide snapshots of classroom interactions, focusing on the effectiveness of particular curriculum materials, assessment methods, or teaching techniques. The cases in this book instead focus on some of the challenges faced by educators and communities intent upon reforming entire schools and districts. They offer powerful opportunities for groups of educators and others to analyze and reflect on the issues of school reform as these issues emerge in particular settings and to apply their insights to their own situations. A Casebook on School Reform is a powerful catalyst for discussion. It can be used in teacher-education classes, professional development workshops, parent-teacher groups, school councils, school boards, and other community forums to analyze problems, generate and evaluate alternative solutions, and discuss and reflect upon the underlying issues. Because the cases portray conflicting perspectives with sympathy, they can even encourage dialogue among individuals with competing interests.

Many Families, Many Literacies: International Declaration of Principles
At a time when family literacy policies and practices are confusingly fragmented and often deficit driven, Many Families, Many Literacies provides much-needed guidance on developing policies and practices that build on the strengths that families bring to any learning situation: their diverse languages, literacies and complex problem-solving capabilities. Many Families, Many Literacies reclaims family literacy from the family literacy movement and asserts that society constructs the conditions of poverty in which many families are forced to live. It represents the opinions of 49 leading education experts and family literacy practitioners, including Lucille Fandel, Ken Goodman, Yetta Goodman, David Barton, Audrey N. Grant, Klaudia Rivera, Judith Kalman, Letta Matsiepe Mashishi and many others. This edited collection may prove valuable reading for any educator, researcher or community-based practitioner concerned about the political implications of the family literacy movement.
